Wobbly, droopy, and feeling very sorry for himself, but home safe and sound. Linus did really well during his dental (though he was not terribly brave I am told haha) and is resting comfortably with a little bit of dinner on his chin. Lucky boy gets to eat stinky wet food for a couple of weeks until his gums heal up. And his little sad eyes have both of us wrapped around his little paw. Lots of pampering coming his way!
For those of you who are curious, Linus didn't need a routine dental cleaning (though we did that at the same time). He's less than a year and a half old and we brush his teeth so he didn't have problems ... yet. He DID have unerupted/partially erupted teeth that WOULD have caused problems. We had initially thought that maybe he had a broken tooth, but it just turned out to be standard wonky pug teeth. He had two pulled and was sent on his merry way. Hopefully we're good now for a year or two! 👍 (Gotta keep up that brushing and Whimzee routine!)
Another thing the vet recommended to help Albus with ear issues and head tilt/vestibular issues was acupuncture. Luckily one of the vets was certified and he was able to do his first session today. The hope with acupuncture is to try to reduce inflammation in the ear and reduce pains and maybe even help with his head tilt. Lots of treats and pets were given to keep him distracted while the vet was placing the needles and keep him from moving around a lot while they were in. Albus did an awesome job and even after all 10 needles were removed, he was straightening his head (no head tilt) to take treats while the vet re-examined him. He also seemed calmer and was waaaaay more comfortable on the car ride home! 🙏🏻Thank you to everyone who donated to our GoFundMe (link in bio) for his bilateral total ear canal ablation and bulla osteotomy🙏🏻 The vet has sent the referral to specialists in San Antonio area and we are waiting for them to call us to set up a consult and potentially a CT scan before scheduling the surgery to Make Albus’ quality of life better🥰🥰🥰 Please share as every little bit is appreciated more than we can express.

I’m baaaaaaaaack! Went on Holibobs last week. Busy weekend catching up on the mischief I’ve not caused. This weekend I chewed my mums boots, destroyed a pretty shoe (Tis in the bin now 👎) went to the beach and got myself covered in sand and to top it all off chewed a hole in my bed.. ahh it’s good to be home 😈.
As many of you know, Albus has had several medical issues since we rescued him after being abandoned on the streets of Austin, Texas. Fortunately, we have been in a position to cover all of his medical expenses with no help from anyone. However, this is a very unique situation. His hoomom has discovered she has her own medical issues and will no longer be able to serve our country as a United States Naval aviator. Combined with this news, we were awakened to Albus flopping around on the floor with his eyes moving left to right crazy fast and he was unable to stand up. Although we originally thought it was a seizure, it turns out he had a very severe inner ear infection which left him with a likely permanent head tilt. After taking several doses of antibiotics the inflammation decreased to the point where we could get a better diagnosis. As it turns out, he has no ear drums in either ear. After getting a second opinion, we have been told the best thing for him to live a healthy life is to have his ear canal removed and even though he will be permanently and completely deaf, he will help increase his quality of life. If any of our furiends or hooMan friends can help at all, we, as well as Albus, would be eternally❣️ https://www.gofundme.com/f/get-albus-his-inner-ear-surgery?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cf+share-flow-1 (link in bio) #pugnation#gofundpet#dogsurgery#petsurgery#petinneed#puginneed#puglife#pugrescue#adoptdontshopswipeleft#instalike#instapug#fawnpug#seniorpug#vestibulardisease#vestibulardisorder#totalearcanalablation#grumble_inc#webadbutnotbadbad#badasspugclub#flatnosedogsociety
